Girl uses Facebook to save her father's life (VIDEO)

Henlawson - A frightened 10-year-old girl turns to social media for help when a tree crashes on top of her father during a thunderstorm.
A little girl was able to enjoy Father's Day with her dad after some quick thinking on her part.
On June 10, Gregory Vance and two of his friends were sitting outside on the front porch when a storm rolled in, causing a tree to crash on top of them.
The tree had also taken out phone service, making it impossible to call to 911. Fortunately, the family’s Wi-fi was still active, and Gregory’s 10-year-old daughter accessed the Internet using her mobile device and recorded a frantic plea for help on Facebook.
“The lightning crashed and hit a tree by our porch and my dad’s almost dead,” Brianna Vance said between tears. “He needs an ambulance please. Please call one for us if you have a signal. We live in a yellow house.”
Someone had watched Brianna’s plea and called 911, and first-responders arrived at the scene to rescue the three men not a moment too soon. Gregory was complaining of head, neck, and back injuries and was having difficulty breathing, but in the end he left the scene of the freak accident with only a few broken bones.
“This is the real hero, that little girl,” Lt. Tim Granger of the Henlawson Fire Department told ABC News. “I hope she gets recognized for her heroism.”
All three men were released from hospital, and Gregory came home to Brianna just in time for Father's Day.
“I love u dad I am so happy you r home,” she wrote on Facebook.
